Are you dreaming of wide-open spaces, fresh, crisp air and outdoor adventures you can only find in the rugged state of Alaska? If so, you should book a flight to the jet charter airport in Craig. The largest town on Prince of Wales Island, Craig serves as the main hub for the entire island.
Craig’s beauty is absolutely unrivaled thanks in part to its location on the famed Prince of Wales Island. With the Tongass National Forest nearby, there are so many different adventures to discover in Craig. From fishing and hiking to wildlife viewing and bird watching, there’s no shortage of ways to spend your days.
There are only two ways to get to Craig: ferry or jet charter flight. However, you can access most of the island via car rental once you get there.
One of the more popular activities for visitors headed to Craig is fishing. There are a few charters in the area that will take visitors out on the ocean to fish or watch for whales. Of course, you won’t just see the fish you catch or the whales that swim by. You’ll also catch a glimpse of otters, birds native to the area, and the occasional bear or moose.
If you’d like to do some swimming, but don’t want to brave the chilly Arctic Ocean, the Aquatic Center is a really great alternative. The center offers a full-sized pool, children’s pool, hot tub, sauna and fitness center. It’s the perfect place to warm up on a chilly winter day too!
